Car overheated, been hearing swishing water from heater core, coolant spilled over the road and water is leaking under passenger side behind the engine block, can't see exact source
I have the crack in the plastic part that the hose goes on. It is leaking and the guy at the station said I may have to replace the intake . That is a cheap way to make a car head intake for a car . I just found out the problem after a few weeks working on the hose and still leaking. I will try to fix it by melting the plastic back together with a solder gun .
I have solved the problem.one cotton ball .super glue .stuff , light cotton ball .blow out. Will harden cotton n seal crack.

Have not fixed yet - just saw the problem - this is a replaced one - after the original was replaced for its rupture issue.
Were the I guess heater hose connects to I guess the manifold that broke off inside the hose so can I like fit the hose over the hole thing and tighten the clip thing or what car I do tell I can get it fixed
